bugfix: truncate description fields greater than 1024 bytes in size to fix rh#475947
I'm not going to show all of such insanely long descriptions. Descriptions shouldn't be this long.
*** Bug 476479 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Even when description is not that long, it is very annoying when description field suddenly changes its height when clicking on the package. It should have fixed (and preferably, user-adjustable) height and a scrollbar. Truncating the description is not a good idea, IMHO.
Description of enlightenment is fixed in enlightenment-0.16.999.050-1. It's already in rawhide, updates for F-10 and F-9 will be pushed in few days

Erm, and what is happening on the gpk side now?
GPK truncates super long descriptions, and I'm working on making it a scrollable text box for the next major release.
